MS Lofoten, our vintage era favorite, was launched in Oslo in 1964, and provides you with a nostalgic voyage and an intimate, informal atmosphere.

The ship is named after the Lofoten Islands. Situated just north of the Arctic Circle, Lofoten is famous for its dramatic scenery and often described as a masterpiece. On a voyage with MS Lofoten the heritage of Hurtigruten is centre stage. With unique lounges and panoramic decks, this old lady is simply incomparable.

Life Onboard

7 – 13 m2.
Separate beds, one bed can be turned into a sofa (some with upper/lower berths). 

Visiting 34 ports, Hurtigruten have an exceptional opportunity to get fresh produce from local suppliers everyday. This means delicious new and fresh ingredients, both from coastal and inland areas.

Authentic food experiences
To enhance this unique concept, you will have food experiences not only in the restaurants, but also through storytelling. You can also enjoy tastings of seasonal produce on deck.

No Kids program offered.


Activities exclusive to the MS Lofoten include fishing directly from the deck, or set pots to attract king crab to be served to the fishermen at the next meal. 

MS Lofoten - fully restored to reflect its prime in the roaring 1960s, with the nostalgic atmosphere to reflect the era.

Think traditional etiquette, a complimentary sherry in the lounge before dinner.
